Happy New Year?

Hi! I’m back, sort of. Trying to start the new year with more creating. It’s a slow start. Lots of excuses not to make more pottery, it’s cold, the cellar flooded, it’s cold, and on.

Excuses, not really reasons, the cellar is dry, it’s winter, winter is cold and I do have supplemental heat now. The rush to make, bake and get ready for the holidays has left me a little, tired. That means time to recharge, to read, write and start getting ready to make. The mug season is coming and I do have some mugs made! Time to see if I can make them bigger and more consistent. I’m getting better about that, but weighing the clay would help. Must be time to get a scale. Also measure more accurately.

The pop up saleĀ did well. I need to make moreĀ  trays and bowls. My goddess cup sold, that was a surprise! I think I’m good on head cups, just need to display them with herbs and flowers. Give people some ideas of what to do with them. I had problems with making the chip and dips, so none to sell, that did hurt my overall sales. Now I know. Here are some old favorites to see until I make more pieces. Until then Happy holidays,Happy New year and stay warm!
